Often called Rabbiteyes this is one of the hardiest of all the blueberries. Berries often form like grapes in thick clusters. This variety is often in the shops due to it's larger size and bigger harvest. It ripens in the middle or end of the blueberry harvesting season. It is self fertile but you can increase it's yield by planting it near other varieties. This variety is very well suited for the home orchard.

$17.75 ($17.75-$17.75 choose a size)

Blueberry - Brightwell Reviews & Tips

Suspect it died due to short lapse in watering. Other varieties of blueberry bushes OK. Perhaps this variety is more sensitive.

Acid loving plant, I use azalea potting mix, azalea slow release fertiliser and pine bark. I have them in large pots and 2 other varieties with them as cross pollination increases fruit production significantly.
